Danish outfit, Audiovector has announced the R-series featuring the Audiovector Freedom Grounding system, to “eliminate distortion” and “lower the noise floor”
All R-series speakers use a tilted plinth, designed to, “…avoid standing waves in the cabinets,” said the company. “Ín a way we have put them on high heels. The plinths have a built-in steel spring holding the spikes to rid the speakers from the mass of the floor.”
The R-series will all be available in the standard matte colors: Italian Walnut, African Rosewood, Black Ash and White Silk. A black cloth grille is included with all speakers. All Audiovector S/Si/SR-series can be upgraded to the R-series.
The SR-series will be discontinued when the R-series hits the streets on the 1 October 2019.
There are two models aimed at audiophile hi-fi users. The R1 is a compact speaker with a 87db sensitivity. Patented Audiovector designed in-house drivers, made in Denmark, include a 165mm mid/bass unit and Air Motion Transformer tweeter.
You’ll also find the R3 floor-standers, a 2-way rear-ported design that features 90.5db of sensitivity, uses the same drivers as the R1 but sits them in a non-parallel tear drop design to minimise internal standing waves. Prices to follow.
